The game is afoot! Once again the Shaffer Hotel has generously and graciously agreed to host the annual Poets and Writers Picnic (13th!) and Sunflower Poetry Writing Workshop. Shaffer manager Mary Kate Lackey is most pleased welcome a pack, gaggle, herd or whatever of poets to the Shaffer and looks forward to meeting us. The Picnic, scheduled Sat. Aug. 28, noon to 5 pm, runs concurrent with Mountainair's annual Sunflower Festival. Picnic are held in the gazebo park next to the hotel and include featured readers and music as well as an open mic. Ken Gurney rejoins Dale Harris as co-mc.
